  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut the sour dough bread into bite-sized cubes.
  3. Place the cubes on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder salt, and pepper.
  4. Use a large spoon to toss the cubes and evenly coat them in the oil and toppings.
  5. Spread the cubes around, leaving space around each one so that the edges can crisp up. Use 2 baking sheets if needed.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown and crisp. (Mine were done after 10 minutes exactly.)
  7. Leave them on the baking sheet to cool. Once fully cooled, store them in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
